Roundabout Scribbling. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 22 August 1885

Roundabout Scribbling. TBy a Lady.1 Not long ago a lady suggested that cats should bo tho antidote to tho rabbit pest, and in ono of the infested districts the efficacy of . this remedy is being tried with every promise of success. Tlio only diffi culty that' threatens to interfere with a triumphant victory for puss over poor bunny, arises from tho trappers who mako a good thing out of thoir rabbit slaughters. Like Othello, thoir occupation will be gone unless they wreak vongeance on Grimalkin and destroy folino rivalry. .Truth is often stranger than fiction, yet , it seems incredible that a strong man..; inj tho primo of life — a linguist, and expert in uecount-keoping— should bo compelled to commit ciimo its the only means of avoid ing starvation. Such is tho pitiful story told by a German to a magistrate the other . (lay. . Tho unfortunate foreigner was ashamed to beg, and work ]ib-rcotild^nqt got, so broke tlio lftw in order'to ohtaiii board and lodging free gratis for nothing. ...

Per haps ho history during the present 'century affords a moro striking instanco of what steady persovoranco and a determination to succeed, can do, than the lives of these two brothers. Thrown on thoir own re sources at a comparatively early age, tlioy manfully and steadfastly overcame evory obstaclo which stood between thom and success ; denying themselves every grati fication, working early and late, and eat ing tho bread of carefulness, they fought their way to fame with an unwavering front and dogged resol...

Sporting. CRICKET IN BALMAIN. [BY FRED.] I It was a hne Saturday afternoon in Novem ber three years ago, that I lii-st entered Bai main or clappcd eyes on nny part of it.

The Bad and Worthless are never imitated or comxerfeited, . This is especially true of a family medicine, audit is positive proof that the remedy imitated is oi the highest value. As. soon as it had been tested and proved by the whole world that Hop Bitters was the purest, best and most valuable family medicine on earth, many imitations sprung np and began to steal the notices in which the press and the people of the country had expressed the merits of H.B., and in every way trying to induce suffering invalids to use this stuff instead, expecting to make money on the credit and good name of H.B. Many have started nostrums put up in similiar style _ to H. B., with variously devised names in which the word ' Hop' or ' Hops' were used in a way to induce people to believe they were the same as Hop' Bitters. All such pretended re medies or cures, no matter ..what their style of name is, and especially those with the word 'Hop' or,' Hops' in their name 'or' in any way connected with them ...

It appears that whilo Constablo Trimmings ?was passing a cottage in Mort-street, tho property of Mi-. Rogers, ho saw flumes issuing from tho roof of tho kitchen. Ho promptly rendered assistance, and by means of buckets of water extinguished them before tho fire had an opportunity of spreading. The conflagration soems to have originated in a spark from tho firo place catching the roof, which is of shingle. Unfoi'ttimitoly no one was at homo but an old lady who is an invalid ; tho property is not insured, and there is little doubt that but for tho promptitude of tho constablo, who we understand has only recently joined the Balmain Force, tho cottage and the one next to it would have been burnt to tho ground. - One of the attractions' for next Saturday, the otli inst.,...

Poetry, SONNET—A SHELL. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 29 August 1885

Poetry, SONNET— A SHELL. 0 ! relic of the ever rolling sen, Of stormy tracts convulsed by rushing wind, ; A solemn sound of ocean's minstrelsy , In hollow murmurs of thy caves I find, An echoing voice to thy frail home consign'd Thou fragile tenement, that in the days AVhcn tliou wast conversant with billows wild, ? And rushed on wingstliatfollow'docean'swnys, Immutable, upon the voiceless child Of billows dread, a kingdom undcfiled Didst thou bestow. 01 plaintive shell, AVhat music lurks thus secret in thy caves ? What pensive story dost thou sighing tell Of battling winds and ocean's stormy waves John B. O'Haua.
